Changes in 2017

From January until the summer of 2017, Hintze Hall will be closed while we work on a spectacular reimagining of this iconic national space.

During this time you will still be able to enjoy our Dino Snores for Grown-ups events. Set up camp under one of our iconic exhibits such as the Stegosaurus in the Earth Hall or the Fossil Marine Reptiles gallery and roam the Dinosaurs gallery at night. Space will be limited so book now to secure your place.
